I liked the look of this sci fi short quite a bit. It is quiet, like the title, and solemn even. A lot is suggested--a leaving of a desert Earth. All done by showing, without words, images of people, masked and wearing long robes, as they move across the desert and do cryptic things. Interspersed with some cool still-life shots of geometric space ships. The director Lowery is deeply indebted to 2001, but that's not so bad a debt. Also a bit of Dune and Indiana Jones stirred in. If you're not into sci fi, you'll need to be into at least art house I would assume to enjoy this little gem. It's well done-very professional looking. You can find it on YouTube, currently in two parts. (Running time on YouTube is about 17 minutes, not 22 asstated above.)
